completing all of the requirements. you've heard his story here. his story went viral getting nationwide exposure when he went on the ellen degeneres show. now three months after his parents supported him with an online petition the boy scouts announced it is re-evaluating its policy banning gay scout leaders. >> i think it brought it home to parents who saw their own children in potentially the same position and it was amazing how fast we gathered signatures on that petition. there's almost 500,000 signatures on that as of tonight. >> that's ryan's dad. the scouts now say they're considering letting each troop decide individually whether to allow gay scouts. ryan's family calls it a baby step in the right direction. >> okay. let's bring in our chief meteorologist jeff ranieri and in a couple years the super bowl is supposed to be in santa clara. we just had this weather two

bunch of new technology. as the stadium of the future rattles, the technology on its way into the stadium hums. silicon valley networking veteran brocade chosen by the 49ers to wire their new digs has the task of creating the most tech savvy sports facility in history. >> because it's going to host all the services and all the technology that silicon valley has to offer. >> reporter: that's the chief technology officer dave stevens who says the goal is to make this stadium as tech friendly as your living room. assuming your living room can handle 70,000 football fans. >> so that means that you have to be able it to support everybody's mobile devices, people have to upload photos to insta gram, they have to get on facebook, they have to run instant messaging. they have to do all the things they can do at home. their expectation is they can do that inside the stadium. >> reporter: nothing like that has been done before. most stadiums just frustrate mobile users.
6:26 pm
now the 49ers want you to get a strong connection in the stands as the team has down on the field. but it won't be easy. >> when you think about taking that and packing it into a giant concrete bowl with 70,000 people accessing those services all at the same time, all inside that physical facility, it's a very, very difficult environment. >> reporter: if broe cade can pull it off, maps, streaming replays, and virtual men use will be as common as runs, passes and touchdowns. as for other companies trying to get the gig, the 49ers say there were other candidates. they wouldn't say who just brocade, not the biggest of companies, ultimately got the contract. >> a lot of pressure on brocade. what about jerry rice? 49ers receiver randy moss makes a bold, bold statement about his legacy, turning a lot of heads. we continue our live coverage from new orleans.

detectives spent the day and part of the evening searching the home on the 1100 block of mesonic street. they served a search warrant related to a cold case in the disappearance of kevin collins. cadaver dogs zeroed in on some remains under a concrete floor of the garage. now tonight sfpd is confirming based on a preliminary examination of those bones. investigators believe they are from an animal and not from a human. they say further analysis is necessary.
6:30 pm
collins, you might recall, was just 10 years old when he vanished in 1984. this was a case that shook the bay area and made national news. this video from our archives. sfpd has been looking for his remains ever since. the current resident of the home they searched today is not a suspect in this case. from budget battles to gun reform and now immigration, president obama outlines his plan to fix our broken immigration system. >> the president's speech comes one day after a group of bipartisan senators proposed sweeping reforms as well. >> the reason i came here today is because of a challenge where the differences are dwindling. where a broad consensus is emerging. >> the president is referring to a consensus perhaps among a block of senators but certainly not for much of congress. it still remains highly controversial like a pathway to citizenship. that's the topic of tonight's reality check. we bring in sam brock. good evening. >> reporter: the success and
6:31 pm
immigration reform will likely hinge on whether some conservatives and some democrats can stomach the idea of granting citizenship eventually to millions of people currently here illegally. a pathway to scitizenship will destroy american jobs, cost taxpayers big bucks and spur more illegal immigration, we say you'd better check your facts. across a group of eight senators, just kick started a conversation on immigration reform that's caught the attention of many from its most ardent supporters. to those who oppose any proposal creating a, quote, pathway to citizenship like veteran congressman lamar smith, who had this to say. quote, when you legalize those who are in the kcountry illegally, it costs taxpayers millions of dollars, costs american workers thousands of jobs, and encourages more illegal immigration. but are these claims true? let's dissect one at a time. first, would legalizing 11 million workers take away american jobs in the long run?
6:32 pm
we asked the author of the new geography of jobs who devotes an entire chapter in his new book to the impact of immigration reform on the economy. >> they're already here. they're already working. there will be some impact on the labor market but it will not be enormous because they are already in the market. >> reporter: they claim immigration reform takes away available jobs is largely untrue especially when you consider many of those jobs being discussed are low wage, low skilled positions which brings us to our second question. will future legalization of our immigrant population cost taxpayers millions of dollars or not? he says it depends on which part of the population you're talk ing about. those hikely to use government aid when eligible, yes. >> because they are more likely to be lower income americans than americans, the second time would be bad for the u.s. budget because it's going to cost
6:33 pm
money. >> reporter: but adding high skilled workers, which is also part of the grand proposal, will mean major economic benefits. >> increasing the college graduates and education abroad, increasing their numbers here, would be -- would increase jobs and salaries for less americans for a number of reasons. >> reporter: the claim of lost taxpayer dollars is partly true, but to get more perspective we questioned the former director of immigration policy and a think tank at berkeley law school. what evidence do we have that if we have a pathway to citizenship this would somehow be a huge albatross, a drain on american taxpayers? >> no evidence at all because while these people are on probation status, they're not eligible for any federal public benefits. >> reporter: those same folks will eventually be eligible for benefits if they wait at the end of the line for permanent legal status.
6:34 pm
that's a process that could take years if not denyicades or even longer. the point here is any drain on federal taxpayers from legalizing the immigrant population would take decades to materi materialize. the cbo when examining this issue in 2007 projected a $25 billion gain in the first ten years of legalization if a similar policy were pursued not a loss. as for the final question, will the proposal increase illegal immigration? it's impossible to predict future human behavior but government data shows there's been a net decrease in migration both legal and illegal the last few years. i'm sam brock and that is today's reality check. back to you. the senate overwhelmingly confirms five-term senator john kerry as the next secretary of state. the final vote in the senate was 94-3. after he's sworn in later this week he'll face a long list of global concerns including iran's controversial nuclear program, security challenges in north
6:35 pm
africa and the middle east and departmental changes in response to that deadly terrorist attack in benghazi. kerry is replacing hillary clinton who told a global town hall meeting today when she steps down she'll write a memoir about her years at the state department. mrs. clinton had also added she will not be addressing the 2016 election. another change to president obama's cabinet, transportation secretary ray lahood is resigning. the only republican still left on president obama's first term cabinet says he intends to remain in office until his successor is confirmed that will probably be another two months from now. he says working in the cabinet was, quote, the best public service job he's ever had. a horrific discovery in syria today. at least 60 people dead in what appears to be a mass execution. nbc bay area's janelle wang is here with our "world tonight." a body found on a river bank in the city of aleppo bound and apparently shot in the head. the victims men in their teens, 20s and 30s.
6:36 pm
it's not clear who shot the victims or when it happened but appears they were dumped in the river and discovered after the water receded. a commander of the opposition forces believes the men were executed by the syrian government. 30,000 have arrived in neighboring jordan just this month alone. today president obama authorized another 155 million dollars in hum humanitarian aid bringing the total to $365 million. the money couldn't come soon enough. workers at the largest refugee camp in jordan say they're running out of time and money and room. it's estimated that more than 700,000 syrians have fled their country since the uprising began nearly two years ago. over to egypt now, another country on the verge of collapse. that was the warning today from the country's top military cleve. the latest wave of anti-government demonstrations has left 60 people dead. the protests began last week on a two-year anniversary of the uprising that led to the ousting of former president hosni
